What is Simple HTML DOM?

A programming interface for HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and XML (Extensible Markup Language) documents is called the Document Object Model (DOM). It specifies how a document is accessed and handled, as well as its logical structure. DOM is a method of representing the website in a hierarchically structured form, making it simpler for programmers and users to navigate the document. HTML is used to organize web pages, and Javascript is used to provide behavior. The HTML document cannot be immediately understood by javascript when it is loaded into the browser. As a result, a corresponding document (DOM) is produced. The DOM essentially represents the same HTML page in a new way by utilizing objects.
